I have just bought a Schneider 430mm, Apo Artar. Can anyone help me with some in formation on this lens? Is it comparable to the Goerz Red Dot Artar? THanks.

Schneider was the last owner of the rights to produce the Artar line - they acquired the "company" sometime around 1990. It is the same lens. One question, some people have stated that there may have been multicoated versions (Schneider denies that there are), is yours single or multicoated?

Roland as i am looking to the design of the lens, it is probably corrected for 1:1 shoot. this lens is single coated.
